Trudy Pelletier

Communication Specialist for Business Families




As a professional advisor in services such as legal, accounting, tax, investments and philanthropy, you’ve probably experienced a business family who is stalled in signing off on a critical element of succession and estate planning. It’s common to have business families and their enterprises at risk, simply because they’ve not started the conversation. There can be several reasons to avoid the planning. It might reside in existing conflict, or fear of causing conflict, or uncertainty as to what the future holds - specifically how to be united and fulfilled as a business and family, with a clearly articulated vision.

Whether it be time, energy, money, or a combination thereof, there is a cost to you when your business family clients defer decisions, get stuck, or avoid talking through the tough issues. There are resources available to reduce those costs, grow your business, strengthen your relationships as a trusted advisor, and even potentially expand trust levels.

Making a difference for you and your business…

I am widely recognized as a communication specialist in the arena of family enterprise introduced to business families by their technical trusted advisors. I’m a champion for business families to navigate those emotional conversations for succession, transition and continuity planning. I coach business family leaders to develop their communication competencies to talk through what really matters to them. This is foundational to business families making decisions to secure their future, address conflict, and build their capacity to manage those common tensions and complex issues that require time to resolve.
